I had the same problem. It seems that you need to add another hose washer to the drain hose that connects to the dehumdifier. I wasn't able to tighten it enough by hand to keep it from leaking. BE CAREFUL ! ! The plastic connector in the dehumdifier is just that PLASTIC so don't try to overtighten with a pliers, etc... I still get a minimal amount of water in the bucket but only have to dump every 4-6 weeks, if even that.

The dehumidifier does not fill the tank it only flows by the hose connection


most units that have been adapted to hose connections can't be made to go back to using the bucket , this is because flow diverter has been "punched out" by adding the hose connection and now all the flow goes out hose , but a simple M/T gallon milk jug with a short hose sitting behind unit on floor has been used sucessfully , but rememember to M/T jug every day!!

I have a fdl70s1 and will only work in continuous mode.. Collects water fine but turns off when I adjust humidity setting


I appreciate your post, Lee Silvey!

I understand that your Frigidaire dehumidifier, FDL70S1, will only work in continuous mode. Sounds like you could have a possible issue with the sensor or control panel. Are you under warranty? I would advise you to speak with your manufacturer to see if any further resolution can be provided. -Matt

Have model FDL70S1 that is hooked up to a hose into a drain. For some reason now it is collecting in the bucket and shutting off once the bucket is full instead of going down the hose. Any ideas to help?


It is possible that your hose has a build up of algea in it that has started to jell. The water you are removing from the air is very pure and allows this growth. I would remove the hose and clean by blowing through it or hooking it up to faucet and flush it out. If you can get it open then running a cup of bleach thru it on a regular basis will stop this from happening again.

I have a FDL70S1 Dehumidifier. Unit runs for just a couple minutes and shuts off-blinking bucket full even though no water in bucket. Unit won't stay on


Dont spend to much time trying to repair dehumidifier they are very cheap to replace. Most dehumidifiers have lots of problems because they are made so cheap. Just replace the dehumidifier you will tank me in the end.

The water won't run continuously out, instead the tank fill up. I have it set up to run continuous but the tank keeps filling up. I have the Westpointe dehumidifier.


Some dehumidifiers don't require that the bucket be in place, when a drain hose is attached to the unit. I'm not sure that's the case with yours, because I'm unfamiliar with the Westpointe brand. You should also check the drain connection that the hose is connected to. It may be clogged, which forces the water into the bucket instead of draining through the hose. If you have something flexible like a long plastic Zip Tie, that can easily be run into the hose connection and slowly pulled back out, while rotating it should loosen any clogs. Be prepared for water to follow. Do not use a wire coat hanger to do this and be sure the unit is OFF and unplugged from the wall, before attempting it.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

Have hose hooked up but it does not drain. Compartment fills with water and needs dumped manually. Want the hose to work so twice-a-day dumping in basement not needed. Thanks!


You connected a hose to the hose outlet on the catch tank ... right? The tank will not drain even though there are no kinks in the hose and the end is lower than the tank, right? Did you put a hole in the tank before you attached the hose? I will bet not ... and I will not laff at you ... I did the same.

Put a hole in the tank (where the hose attaches), reattach the hose and all will be well.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com :-)

I put a hose on my 50 pint drain and it still just fills the tank, what do I do? PS the hose is not plugged


Is there a actual hole in the tank where your hose connects? Is there a piece of dirt clogging the hole in the tank.

Water runs down hill ... if there is a hole in the tank for the water to get out and the hose is clear and it is going down hill ... it must drain. The entire length of the hose has to be flat or down hill and no kinks.

Let me know what you find please

Check the point on the tank (Bucket) where the hose connects to. Make sure there is no obstruction at the outlet of the bucket to the hose connection. Next make sure the hose has no kinks or no loops that may trap air to the drain. If necessary for a long run to the place of drainage raise the dehumidifier to a higher level for better drainage.

Tank still fills when we are using direct drain feature


check to see that the hose isn't clogged, and that the hose runs down hill from the tank all the way to the drain. if it is higher than the tank at any point in its path it will not drain. you may put the dehumidifier on top of a small platform to aid drainage. also check that the knockout removed so there is a hole to let the water go from the tank to the hose?
